I received my daily unsolicited email today. This one was from an overzealous Broker describing her listing. And I quote:
"DEAL OF THE CENTURY
Our seller's Loss Is YOUR Buyer's Gain
No Deal Will Be Refused
Come See, Come Buy Today
The Welcome Mat is Out
Seller Needs To Sell Yesterday, WOW!"
Only everything was in RED and in bold. The house itself looks like a gigantic shoe box. A big square built by a less than respected builder.
Last I checked, a century was 100 years. That's a long time back to make such a claim. The home is priced about 10% below market value, hardly the "deal of the century." I did some research and found that this particular neighborhood has more short sales and foreclosures than a beach has sand, further diminishing the subdivisions value.
No deal will be refused?
It's the obligation of every Realtor in the state of Texas to present all offers.
Maybe the seller directed the listing agent to advertise the home as "Our seller's loss is your buyer's gain" who knows?
Have our listings turned into used car lots? Are we using methods, tactics and verbiage that you'd ordinarily hear at the car lot? Seems like some sellers and listing agents are really reaching to get showings. This type of gorilla marketing will usually attract one type of buyer....
